The other day I chanced upon this post about clothes pegs over at whipup. I followed the links and arrived at a post about clothes peg iconography. The pictures are intriguing, who knew there were so many different types of clothes pegs in the world. I keep having to go back and look again. My favourite is the somewhat worn red peg, "perhaps our strangest peg - we have no idea why it is designed the way it is." Now I see different clothes pegs everywhere. On our line I counted five different types.
I see new ones everywhere now; at my sisters, at mother's group, at the supermarket. I'm probably going to start yet another collection. G said I could have his bamboo peg, if I do. Just what I need, another collection, but I think I will. At least pegs are small.
Below is one of the new pegs I bought last week. Our current pegs are crappy and I've decided to seek a longer lasting peg. These are Italian and look the business. Only blue and white in a pack, not as colourful as the neon ones I've favoured recently. G thinks they're an abomination, being a bit "North Melbourne." Football themed clothes pegs, now there's a niche for the AFL. Maybe on my travels I'll find some old dark navy blue pegs.
Right at the end of my peg exploration this afternoon, I realised how different this yellow one is. We have only one of these. I think the spring is quite elegant.
